Finishing up September

We are nearly through September already.  We love autumn time and the gorgeous hiking around our home state.  Wyoming is truly spectacular.  While we're not hiking, canning fruit and filling our freezers for winter, we are of course singing.  Cal just played a private gig up in Jackson and coming up this week we will spend Sept. 25th & 26th at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar.  We hope you'll put down your hunting rifles, set aside your boxes of fruit and trade your hiking gear for dancing boots and meet us there.  Music starts at 9:00.  If you found this blog you can get monthly updates here until we get our new website up and running.  We will soon be re-launching our and can also be found  here, and here,

Coming Up . . . .

Summer has just about gotten away from us and we've had a ball singing around Wyoming.  There are still some great shows coming up, most of them private, but one that we hope EVERYONE will make it to.  Joe Nichols will be playing the Lincoln County Fair in Afton, Wyoming, August 4th and we are fortunate enough to be opening for him.  He puts on a great show and we can't wait to see him in person at our beautiful fair. Tickets can be purchased online at or at the venue that night.  If you are planning on attending more than one event at the Fair you can get a great deal on a P.O.P (pay one price) ticket.  $60 gets you into ALL the events, including the Joe Nichols concert.  Can't wait to see you all in our neck of the woods.

Brave Cadette Review

It's been a long while since I've been to the Brave Cadette Review, but this year my brother Cal and I will be out supporting the girls in their fundraiser for the High School Dance Team.  Our daddy used to auction cakes for them and I danced to "California Girls" in new stiff cuffed Lee Jeans and a pink Jr. Brave Cadette t-shirt when I was an aspiring dance team member.  Cheerleading won out for me when the time came but I loved watching my friends and eventually my bonus daughter Kelsie dance on the team when she lived with us.  One of the fun things about raising your kids in the same town you grew up is the connection to history and the nostalgia for yesteryear.  Oh, and those fresh perms.  Wow.  Just. . . . . . wow.  Anyway, hope to see you all out supporting these talented young ladies and the leaders and coaches who help them accomplish their dreams.  I hear it's going to be a night to remember.  Thursday March 29th, Afton Wyoming.

Big Piney/Pinedale

The Linford Band is headed just over the mountains to play a private event in the Big Piney/Pinedale area.  We love it over there, close to home, great music, wide open spaces and young people making a go of the ranch life.  I thought I'd throw it back to our first gig over there.  I can't believe it's been so many years since we first burned our feet through our boots at the Sublette County Fair, there's no chance of that happening this weekend, although we may get snowed in this time of year. 

We will be playing with some new guys this weekend.  John Clemens gets some sweet fills in with the Mandolin, Banjo and alternate tunings on the guitar and sometimes bass when Jeff Smith (of twenty paces) is doing double duty with Bass and Keys.  We are excited to be playing this weekend with Greg Tominc, he's been a regular at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in the past and is a great drummer. 

The music plays on.  Hope to see you out there.

Bands and More Bands

The Linfords will no longer be joining forces with Rich Carr and the Twenty Paces Band.  We wish them all the best and hope to see them out there on the road.  Meanwhile, we are concentrating our efforts on The Linford Band and can't wait to see our Pinedale/Big Piney friends this coming weekend.  Oh, and if you get a chance I highly recommend you stop in at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in the next couple weeks.  Marshall Star was playing last night and they had a great set list and were a lot of fun to dance to. The music goes on.

You Are My Sunshine

Our Great Aunt Eva is turning 103 this Friday and this song is in honor of her.  My Great Uncle Ern would play this guitar around the campfire and at his gigs when my Mom was a little girl and it inspired all the music The Linfords enjoy now.  Happy birthday Eva, we are grateful for your long and storied life.
